One of the pioneering forces in the early 80s of the Brooklyn, New York, USA rap scene, DJ Flowers never progressed like peers such as Grandmaster Flash to recorded status. He was nevertheless an important presence in hip-hop’s development as it grew from its base in warehouse club ‘jams’ and street-corner gatherings to an international pop medium.
